              Can  contain a customized sources.list.  It will be read when creating the schroot.
              If a file with ".ubuntu" or ".debian" is found (as appropriate) it  will  use  used

USING THE CHROOTS

       To CHANGE the golden image: sudo schroot -c ${SCHROOT_NAME}-source -u root

       To ENTER an image snapshot: schroot -c $SCHROOT_NAME

       To BUILD within a snapshot: sbuild -A -d $SCHROOT_NAME $PACKAGE*.dsc

       for example, to update the packages in a sid-amd64 golden image:
              schroot -c sid-amd64-source -u root -- sh -c "apt-get -qq  update  &&  apt-get  -qy
              upgrade && apt-get clean" </dev/null
